Designing a Next Generation “Smart” Biomanufacturing Facility


In the biopharmaceutical industry “time to market” is a major driver. An aspect of recent technology development which has shown promise to help address this driver is the use of flexible, single-use manufacturing solutions. These solutions not only decrease or eliminate entirely the time required for production equipment preparation and cleaning, but also significantly decrease the capital investment required for construction of new production plants. 

During this webinar the design of state-of-the-art bioproduction plants based on the use of single-use systems throughout the manufacturing process will be described. Particular emphasis will be placed on the flexibility and advantages of single-use systems. This will also be explained from the point of view of the contract manufacturing organisation Abzena.

The advantages of selecting a single manufacturer platform for upstream process equipment will be described, including the rationale for Abzena to select Sartorius as its partner of choice. The concept of closed processing and the affect this can have on bioproduction facility design for both recombinant proteins and highly potent conjugated products will be discussed. Overseeing all of these systems is the automation that enables modern process equipment to be operated efficiently in a controlled manner. Sartorius’ approach to automation and how it has been adopted at Abzena will also be described.

New biopharmaceutical products have great promise for improving the length and quality of people’s lives. 

However, this can only be achieved through efficient design and utilisation of manufacturing plants and equipment. In this Webinar you will learn how the use of flexible, single-use systems across an integrated platform can help enable the achievement of this goal.
